ACR Systems Brings Out an Affordable Gimbal Motion Mimicking System for Dual Operators

The Link from ACR Systems allows one operator to control pan and tilt of your gimbal while another operates the camera handheld.

We're all a bit familiar with the Freefly MIMIC — The Link is similar that but more affordable, at $560 during NAB.  It's compatible with almost any gimbal on the market by connecting straight to your gimbal's PMW protocol. See it in action here at the NAB convention floor in Vegas.

Does the ACR "mimic" have an issue with pan drift?

People, please open your eyes, the story of this system costing 560$ or the "mimic" beeing $ 495 is simply ridiculous. Before the "incredible" MOVI, RONINS etc the ones that have been in the drone business knew well alexmos (basecam) controllers (probably all this "new" products have been possible because of him providing cheap flexible solutions before other have copied his concept ), and much before the incredible MIMIC anybody willing to spend just some time learning was able to do exactly the same with a total cost of 10$, the price of a bluetooth module for their alexmos gimbal/controllers plus a simple mobile phone attached to a pole and controlling every gimbals axis with the mobile phones accelerometers.
